First keg I found was a pin lock. The next 4 were ball lock. I ended up converting the pin lock to ball lock for simplicity. The kit was cheap enough. I do miss not having a relief valve on the lid though. I can't fit 4 pin lock size kegs in my keezer, but I can squeeze one or 2 in with the rest ball lock.

Sounds like either of them is good. I havent bought anything to put them in yet (thinking about buying a used fridge and converting it) but it sounds like the ball lock would be better if I want to fit more in a fridge. Plus if I buy a new keg system it looks like they are going to be ball lock. Thanks for all the post.
